NFR So as not to derail...

... the COVID-19 Vaccines thread, thought I'd keep this separate (Moderators, feel free to shut down at any time). Had a run-in with the crazies today. A neighbor works for OSHA. About 2 dozen protestors decided to show up at his house, thankfully he had a heads up so he packed his wife and 2 small kids and left for the day. I took the opportunity to have a tête-à-tête with them. Shall we say "Bat Shit Crazy", I think so. Apparently this is a global hoax. People are not dying, the hospitals have not been full, it is all so socialism can take over (asked one fellow if he gave back his $2800 government check, of-course not). I was called a liar and a government stooge and screamed at to repent (I was going against Jesus after all - go figure). At one point, the repent "lady" pulled out some sheathed implement, then unsheathed a wood rasp and started waiving it around, trying to approach me. Kinda comical I kinda chuckled and asked if she was threatening me, other stepped up and told her "we don't need that." Got comments like "If masks work, why can you still smell your farts" (swear to God, that was an actual statement/question from a grown man). I asked someone if they had to have surgery, would it be OK if the surgeon and all surgical staff went without masks - didn't get an answer. Later, I pulled up my mask as it was sliding down, repent lady screamed "surgeon, you touched your mask..." It was literally juvenile stuff.

There were some rather belligerent individuals amongst the group, tried to intimidate me, didn't work, not cause I'm some sort of badass superhero, but more because I'm a stubborn SOB who won't put up with bullshit (could be a fatal flaw one day, oh well). Some sorta crazy, unfortunately, also possibly beyond unhinged and potentially dangerous. Spoke with my my neighbor when he got home (he apologized profusely as if it was something he'd done), and apparently this is some of the same crowd as the Malheur occupation. Real mob mentality. Kind of ironic since they accused me of being under "mind control" from the government. The shame of it is some of them had young kids with them, exposing them to this sort of mentality, intimidation and a fair amount of fowl language from them (I actually held my tongue, curse wise).

Anyway, I could go on, I won't. Just be safe out there. If not for yourself, then for the sake of your family, you neighbors and your community, just hang on for a while longer, wear a mask, socially distance, and if the urge hits you, get vaccinated.

Cheers

Oh, and one other interesting tidbit; one of the conspiracies is that people are not dying of COVID-19, they are dying of other causes but then being listed as dying from COVID-19 - one person related a story to me about a very close friend killed in a car accident, but her death was listed as COVID-19. If you have been following the COVID Vaccine thread, this story may sound familiar.

We get a fair amount of these conspiracy theories here in Moses Lake. No groups protesting at anyone’s house that I know of, thankfully. Sorry to hear your neighbor was targeted.

Hey @Canuck from Kansas -

I would like to thank you for your exquisite and thorough explanations and information dissemination to the WFF online community via the covid vax thread, as well as your deft hand in keeping the discussion focused, mostly positive, and on track when the gravitational pull of stupid threatened to derail it.

If you find yourself in Juneau, Alaska anytime in the future, gimme a heads up and I'll take you on a fly-out day trip. Thanks again!

Like I said in the other thread, some anti-vaxxers showed up at my wife's appointment waving huge Trump flags and yelling at us. They were too far away to hear what they were yelling, but by their distorted facial expressions, it didn't seem friendly. I was actually surprised there wasn't some sort of LEO presence in anticipation of that kind of thing.

I had a patient tell me, in fact insisted, that COVID is a complete hoax.

He went on to explain how 5G cell towers are what’s really making people sick, and the government is trying to cover it up with this “virus” nonsense. Of course, there was plenty of research to back him up.

And yes, he still carried a cell phone around with him.

There's no point in arguing with them. If they haven't "gotten it" by now, they never will....until a loved one dies from covid-19...then it will be someone else's fault anyway. In general, their lives are a train wreck for a reason. With these types, even when surrounded by truth, the bigger challenge they can't overcome is admitting they're wrong.

Maybe there was and they were off duty.
